Favre has 0% chance of returning. I truly believe that.

I expect the Lions to draft Stafford, Chiefs to pick Sanchez. Both teams badly need QBs, gotta do this.

I seem to see people talking about the Chiefs needing a QB a lot of late, and I don't quite get it. I thought Thigpen did a decent job for them considering all the issues of the team.

Chiefs have needed a QB for a while... I was never set on Green... I always kind of thought he stunk... IDK.....

Tyler Thigpen's stats were only as "good" as they were because everybody was shoving eight and nine guys in the box to stop their running game, and making Thigpen beat them.

And even so, all Thigpen did is play well enough to get his team beat - just like Steve DeBerg did for the 49ers in 1979 and 1980 (at least according to Bill Walsh).

It also did not hurt that he had Tony Gonzalez and Dwayne Bowe to throw to. Thigpen is okay but he does not exactly scream franchise QB either. His numbers were decent save for the 54.8 completion percentage. He probably will not lose many games for you because of his play but he won't win any either.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying Thigpen is the next Marino or Montana I just mean that KC has issues in just about all areas of the team, and I don't know that drafting a QB and throwing them into the lineup on a team with so many problems is a good idea. I guess if the idea is to draft a QB to be a backup for a year or two while they solidify the rest of the team I understand.

If you go into a season with Tyler Thigpen as your first option at QB, be prepared to have every one of your games scheduled for 1:00 ET on Sunday (except when you're on the road in the Mountain or Pacific time zone, when they're forced to put the game in the late time slot).
